It is very seldom that the David Vandyke stable has anywhere near the kind of representation … number-wise that is … that it had on Ipswich Cup Day on June 18.

No less seven than Vandyke trained runners faced the starter on the day at Ipswich and, while a win did prove elusive, results were generally of a positive enough nature to rate it as a day well spent.

Desert Lord did the stable proud with a runner-up finish in the Listed Eye Liner. Maybe The Best came up just a stride short of winning the Listed Gai Waterhouse so she too had to settle for second spot.

Street Dancer finished third in the Listed Ipswich Cup while Orbisyn also claimed a third place when racing second-up after a twelve month layoff.

The stable also had two runners at the Gold Coast on June 18 where Jewel Flight joined Desert Lord and Maybe The Best with a runner-up finish while Sir Gunsen added a fourth place finish to the Vandyke stable’s rolling credits on the day.

Overall, the Vandyke stable prize-money return for the day amounted to just shy of $100 000.

Not too shabby for a day’s work without a winner!
